Calling from Colorado...

Well, after my dismal runs at the trial today, it was nice to get home and get some great, uplifting news.

Lisa Webb, the new owner of Break sent me an update today. I am so happy for this new team.

Break and Lisa working together. Check it out....only a trace of snow and nice weather.

Nice turn at the top. See how nice his distance is from the back of the sheep.

Break on a fetch. They have bonded well together.

Break loves being a house dog. He also loves his new toy, a basketball.

Break has come a long way. He has come a long way and landed in a place that he will be top dog. Lisa will be sending us some updates and we will post them.
Some excerpts from her email to me:

Wow...we had a great session today. The sheep were very FAST at first.... and Break was ready to rock & roll...

....... I am tickled pink. Once we get to know each other better on stock, we are going to kick ass!!

.....We drove probably 20-30 yards today, worked in a corner on flanks and did small outruns.... he had no hesitancy whatsoever. He came between the sheep and the fence great

.......but he picked the pace of the stock good........ we are going to have alot of fun.

......I am motivated now to drive the 2 1/2 hours to work dogs on the weekends!!

Oh, his new toy...that huge basketball of my sons!!! He will chase that forever if I let him

Isn't this the best news to come home to....I sure think so.... ;-)

I'm very glad for him. He is a good dog who deserved a great home.
